Friday Favourites | Diverse books

Hi guys,

Ah god I am so happy it’s finally Friday! It’s a bank holiday on Monday so we have a nice long weekend AND I’m going to the MCM bloggers brunch on Sunday!!!!! I am so excited, I’m fasting so won’t be able to eat lol but I can’t wait to meet Susan Dennard and get my Truthwitch copy signed because I bloody loved that book!!! Who else is going???

Ok let’s get started! I’ve been wanting to do a Friday favourites post for so long so finally here is my first Friday Favourites , this is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Kibby over at Something of the Book! You can check out her blog for more details.

This week is favourite diverse books! So here are my 5 top diverse reads (in no particular order):

1. We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal.


A world set in Ancient Arabia, A thrilling romance, fierce characters and plot twists. Read my full review here. ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I’VE READ!

2. The Bride Test by Helen Hoang.


Steamy, romantic and charming. The writing is beautiful and addicting. Find my full review here.

3. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir.


This book was amazing, I read it in one day and then read the sequel straight after, it was thrilling and suspenseful with twists and turns. Highly recommend!

4. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdeih


Beautiful story telling and enemy to lover romance. I need to read the sequel ASAP!

5. Noughts and crosses by Malorie Blackman


This book changed my life. The words pierced my heart. The characters broke my heart. This book is one of the most emotional, heart wrenching books I’ve ever read. Such a powerful book, it destroyed me.


What are some of your favourite diverse books? I want to read more diverse books so give me some recommendations!

  1. We Hunt the Flame sounds amazing! I definitely need to check that out. Noughts and Crosses is one of my favourite books of all time. I read it when I was quite young and it’s the first book which ever made me cry. It’s so devastating, but very powerful. Malorie Blackman is amazing. xxx

      1. So sorry for the late reply! I took an unexpected break from blogging :/ Yes I am going to YALC and I’ll be there for the whole three days! I’m so excited! If you see me (my face is in my profile picture hehe!), then please do say hi! 🙂 xxx


      2. Aww no worries, I am only just seeing this now – I don’t blog as much as I used to so I always miss messages! I had an amazing time at YALC though – how was your YALC experience? Hope you had an awesome time!! xxx
